Dean Ween and Les Claypool will soon have their own fishing show, because what the hell else are they going to do?

So. You already watch Mob Wives and Moonshiners and River Monsters, and you’re going to start watching a fishing show too. According to Glide’s Hidden Track blog, Mickey Melchiondo, a.k.a. Dean Ween — formerly of weirdo-rock duo Ween — leads a secret life as a charter boat captain, and he’s teamed up with Les Claypool of Primus for a reality show that will “fuse sportfishing with music and comedy,” because those three things go together like bacon, lettuce, and tomato, or snap, crackle, and pop, or Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Wait, you don’t like fishing? You’ve never been fishing? Doesn’t matter. Dean Ween says that his show is “a fishing show that you do not have to enjoy fishing to enjoy.” Do you enjoy South Park? The show will be produced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who created South Park. Do you enjoy celebrity guests? Dean Ween and Claypool want to take celebrity guests on their fishing trips. Cross your fingers for an episode where Skrillex catches a shark.

Although Dean Ween is currently working on a soundtrack — which will undoubtedly include sea-chanties and the like — the show currently does not have a title, nor does it have a station. Yet.

In the meantime, watch Dean Ween and Les Claypool catch two fish:
